For the 16th time TRACTO-TECHNIK will present its complete trenchless technology range and the latest products at Bauma in Munich.

The GRUNDOMAT soil displacement hammers have been on show since 1970 and are increasingly being applied for FTTH house connections. A strong characteristic of the 7th Grundomat N generation is the unusual head form, which we describe as a crowned head. This head is unique and guarantees a high penetration force and target precision in stony soils. The GRUNDOMAT N is optionally available with the proven stepped head from the previous generation. A further improvement to this machine is the triple gear control stud. To be able to react better in alternating soils, the GRUNDOMAT N not only has the reverse gear but can be switched between two forward gears with different striking frequencies.

The GRUNDODRILL 18 ACS, also known as the Black Mole, had already been introduced to potential users last year and has found wide acceptance since then. This flexible HDD rig is equipped with twin tube drill rods for rock drilling up to 20 inch diameter and 300 m bore lengths, or with the Twin-Drive drill rods for regular bores with drilling fluid up to 600 mm diameter and 400 m bore lengths. The bore length record for rock drilling is currently 270 m. The GRUNDODRILL 18 ACS with its very high technical standard is equipped with everything you need for an efficient bore operation.

The successor to GRUNDODRILL 15XP is the GRUNDODRILL 15 XPT. With this HDD rig pipes up to 450 mm diameter can be pulled in. Apart from an improvement and optimisation of the performance, the focus was placed on an improvement of the work and operating safety during the development phase.

In addition to the HDD bore rigs from TRACTO-TECHNIK, our partner company PRIME DRILLING will also be exhibiting their HDD large size bore rigs on the 1.500 m² exhibition area.

Network operators and users in Germany and abroad are agreed: The GRUNDOPIT K Keyhole technology is the key to an economic house connection. The Keyhole can be used for installing new pipes using a soil displacement hammer or a steerable mini-bore rig GRUNDOPIT K plus for renewing pipes using the cable pulling unit GRUNDOTUGGER. As a positive side effect, tears and frost damages in the road surface are avoided due to the circular Keyhole form.
In addition to the current GRUNDOBURST range, a new GRUNDOBURST model with 1900 kN pulling force for replacing old pipes with new pipes up to OD 900 is now available. This rig closes the gap between the models 1250G and the 2500G and has already successfully passed several practical tests.

The prototype of the new geothermal bore rig Geodrill 8R, which is the successor model for the Geodrill 4R, will be on show at the Bauma. The rig is now swivable from 30° to 95° and therefore applicable for slanted bores and for vertical bores. Thus the Geodrill 8R can also be applied for well building, foundation and anchoring work. The motor capacity is 55 kW, additionally the torque was increased from 2500 Nm to 8.000 Nm.

Please note: As the exhibition premises has been increased and re-structured, TRACTO-TECHNIK had to move to a different location and is now situated directly at the entrance and car park North/West, Stand No. FGN.N 521/1.
